    What to Expect
    • Visit an artisanal coffee roaster to kick start the morning with a special coffee tasting experience
    • Stop by Honest Chocolate – using only the finest raw (unroasted), organic Ecuadorian cacao this will be the perfect accompaniment to yourbrew
    • Stop off at Frankie Fenner Meat Merchant for some classic South African biltong and droëwors, made the South African way!
    • Visit the famous brightly coloured houses of the Bo-Kaap and learn about the heritage of the vibrant Cape Malay people
    • Enjoy a selection of Cape Malay samosas and sweet treats like koeksisterst and visit to Atlas Spice Trading to shop for spices to take home
    • Visit a wine bar for a taste of local and rare boutique South African wines
    • End the day at an exclusive tasting featuring artisanal, locally distilled gins, served with local Fynbos garnish

    With the rise of Cape Town’s coffee culture, hundreds of good coffee shops and cafes have sprung up. The city used to run on tea (and wine!) but coffee has taken the lead. The last 10 years has seen the emergence of over 100 artisanal roasters alone.

    When you’ve had your fix best coffee shop in Cape Town you’ll head on over to Honest Chocolate, the ultimate chocolate producer. Honest chocolate makes sustainable, organic, raw artisan chocolate. In the café you get dipped in a chocolate experience and get to know everything about the local chocolate scene. 

    Now it’s time to get to traditional South Africa flavour at  Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants Ethical butchery. Biltong is a spiced and dried meat. Nowadays, biltong is made from many different cuts, predominantly beef but also from game animals and ostrich. Droëwors is a South African beef snack and literally means dry sausage. 

    The Bo-kaap is traditionally the Cape Malay quarter and is renowned for the spice trading that takes place there. The brightly coloured houses create a lively and almost festive atmosphere. Stop in at Atlas Trading and choose some spices that you can take home.

    Cape malay cuisine offers lots of sweet and savoury snacks. Samosas are small triangle folded pastries with different fillings and are delicious! Koeksisters are deep fried knots of dough soaked in syrup till they form a delicious crust. They are small, sticky and absolutely glorious. Milk tart is a South African dessert. It has a sweet crust filled with a creamy mixture made of milk, eggs, sugar and flour topped with cinnamon – an essential taste of South Africa.

    The Gin Bar: In a discreet location you’ll experience a journey of three hand-crafted South African gins exemplifying the vast flavour profiles of South African botanicals. Each gin is explained and tasted on it’s own then paired with a tonic and finished off with a unique, fynbos garnish, foraged by the bartenders themselves.
